Would this be a better option for us "church mice"...

I seek out a defense attorney with experience in defending "innocent" men who used "justifiable force" in self defense but for what ever reason, were charged anyway. This attorney would have to have an excellent record of winning...

Then ask him what a fair "retainer" would be considering I will likely never need his service but want to be as prepared for the after as I am for the before aspect...

So I am told a number such as $2k and arrange a payment plan such as 100 per month (20 months) or 200 per month (10 months)...

First question... Could I expect him to honor our arrangement should I need him sooner?

Second... is a retainer usually a one time transaction or is there a payment interval to be expected?

Third... Once "on retainer" will he go further into a case before hitting me up for a large amount to continue?

I ask in this thread as I feel I might be nearly bucks ahead and with a better attorney by setting up my own "installment plan"... Since we may never likely need an attorney for a SD event, it is gambling in my eye like homeowners insurance....

At some point, your payments WILL excedd the policy max payout... given enuff time...
